Problems Caused by Mold
Mold growth affects indoor air quality, presents challenges to people with respiratory allergies and certain health conditions, and may cause structural damage. The presence of mold in the home is most likely to cause problems for people with allergies, asthma, and respiratory conditions. Mold allergies are relatively common and cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.
When mold is present, family members may suffer symptoms, such as:
- Watery eyes
- Runny nose and sneezing
- Wheezing and trouble breathing
- Shortness of breath
- Tightness in the chest
- Sore throat
- A dry cough
- Skin rashes
- Dry skin
While there are medications that people with allergies and asthma can take to help with these symptoms, the best solution is to resolve the mold problem, the second you notice it.

We have many years of experience, and we are ready to keep your home safe from mold and the associated damage.

We offer prompt service for mold removal in Annapolis to eliminate the mold and restore the safety and comfort of your home.
What Is Mold Remediation?
Although mold removal and mold remediation are often used interchangeably, it's important to discuss the difference between removal and remediation. Because mold spores are microscopic and exist everywhere, it's impossible to completely remove mold from an environment. That is why we often refer to the removal process as mold remediation, which is a more accurate description of what we do.
Mold remediation is the process of getting the levels of mold spores back to a natural level as well as discovering the cause of the mold outbreak and preventing it from occurring again.
Mold remediation is a multi-step process that involves the following:
- Inspection: First we will thoroughly inspect your property to detect visible signs of mold. In order to determine the best way to stop the outbreak and prevent it from happening again, we will take air samples to measure the levels of spores as well as determine which type of mold you're dealing with.
- Containment: To prevent mold from spreading to other areas of your property, it's important that we contain the mold to the area it's currently in. We do this by shutting off all fans and systems that circulate air in your home, as the spores can travel through the air. Physical barriers are also implemented to keep the mold in its current location.
- Filtration: Once the mold infestation is contained, we will then resort to filtering the spores out of your air. First, we use air filters to rid your property of active spores and prevent them from developing into fungi. If the mold infestation is extensive, we will also vacuum up spores that have settled onto any surfaces.
- Clean up: Next, we use a combination of anti-fungal and anti-microbial treatments to clean the colonies of mold. If the mold has grown into any porous material, such as wood or walls, we will have to remove and replace it.
- Sanitation: Once, we've finished the remediation process, we will sanitize your property using fogging machines to deodorize the air as well as your belongings.
